Review: Winner Take All is the third novel in the John Rain series.
John Rain is a Japanese-American. He likes whiskey and jazz and Tokyo. He's got an unusual profession: Assassin. At the start of Winner Take All he has moved to Brazil and retired. But the CIA wants to hire him again, to kill a middle eastern arms merchant. He takes the job. But it turns out to be more complicated than he thought, and involves (as usual in these novels) a beautiful woman, treacherous CIA agents, Rain's friend Dox (a sniper who he met in Afghanistan) and more twists than a corkscrew.
